Meiji Jingu Gaien Ginkgo Festival
Icho Matsuri at Meiji Jingu Gaien, Tokyo
Approx 150 Ginkgo trees are lined on this avenue for about 300 m with 2 lanes, and visitors can enjoy a pleasant walk under the charming gingko trees. Even though the best viewing time is about 2 weeks from mid November, the scenery is still enjoyable after the leaves fall down and creates a gorgeous natural carpet with golden colour.
During the peak season, Jingu Gaien Ginkgo Festival “Icho Matsuri” (神宮外苑いちょう祭り) is held from mid November to early December annually. The festival features a large number of vendors and kitchen cars, selling food and drinks including regional specialties from all over Japan. There are also tables and chairs where you can sit and enjoy food.
